you summoned a storm to pull me in
embraced me with your fronds
dappled me with rainbows
clothed me with moss.
I emerged from your canopy
re-membered, re-claimed, re-minded
smelling of earth and wet and longing.
you unclothe me
drape desire over my caution
recast the calm
till I no longer want to emerge from the weightless ocean
to taste the solid hue of dawn.
Emerging heavy from the dream
I exist without you
…embodiment of paradox, testament to resilience, emissary of love.
